Hi I'm Belen

I'm Australian. I'm El Salvadorean. I'm a Field Hockey player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from college with a degree in Psychology but I now have hopes of pursuing a life long goal in becoming a Physical Therapist. I love photography and playing sports of any kind. One of my favorite things to do is have a jam session with close friends. There is nothing more soothing to the soul than pulling out a hand drum and improvising with other instruments. Music heals all wounds.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, so I don't have a powerful conversion story to share. What I do have is a strong testimony that this is the true church. I receive a tremendous sense of comfort and calm when I follow the Lords teachings, which reassures me that I am exactly where I need to be. It's comforting to know that the Lord is by your side no matter what is going on in your life. He will always be there. Knowing that even during the darkest of times, having unshakable faith in Him brings me such peace and happiness. All we need to do is trust in Him. He will show us the way if we just follow the things we have been taught and know to be true.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite motto's to live by is a Latin saying "Virtute Non Verbis", which translates to English as Actions Not Words. It's easy to tell others what we believe in. It's more powerful, however, to show our belief through our actions. Actions speak louder than words. During my four years of college I was faced with tremendous temptations. I made sure to tell others that I was Mormon and what that entailed. I didn't necessarily share my testimony or my beliefs with them, but I made sure that I acted according to my standards. In the end, I had created a strong, positive image of who I was and what I believed in. My friends even started to make sure I was doing what I needed to be doing. They respected me for who I was and for what I believed in.
